Hello World

Cooler this morning. Hope it stays that way.

Read the D90 manual, made some minor tweaks on the camera, I think tomorrow I'll go to the Highland Games and see how it does.

Took a pass by the E. Meadow CalTrain crossing on my way to Fry's, and am happy to report there was a cop car parked inside the crossing. They had one there for a week or so after the first two suicides, but it was gone before the third one.

Am reading Kage Baker's "Company" series book The Life of the World To Come, which wins my Worst Title for a Company Book Evah award. The book is way out of format for the series, though maybe that's not a fair statement because each book takes a different tack. I guess this one is more all over the map than the previous ones. I'll keep reading because I love the way she makes the words flow.

Monday is a holiday. Maybe I'll just spend the day driving back and forth across the Bay Bridge. :-)

Janice came over and we spent a few hours slurping up video from three camcorders (mine, which I had loaned to her, and those of two of her fellow travelers) from her trip to Fiji, and made a video which I later made into a DVd, copies of which are burning and printing as I type. She went overboard with the night vision button, so a lot of it looks green and a little bit like spy films. But it sure beats the black-on-black video from her last trip.

I watched the 49ers meltdown, took some pix of hummingbirds with the new camera and that's pretty much been my whole day.

No plans for tomorrow, except something vague which involves photography.
